Hi, forced to post this from my phone. Since about two days ago, my laptop has been freezing. With the task manager open, I see that I'm using 100%disk, but all of the applications are showing 0 MB/s. This happens about 30 minutes after I boot up. Unfortunately it makes it difficult for me to get logs. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I also noticed that after one of these crashes, my Steam settings get reset.

Running at 100% is already a major problem, but when your Task manager is messed up too, it insinuates a bigger problem than just some process coming on, gobbling up all your hard drive capacities.

At a certain point, you'll have to consider chasing virus' and malware, but you could do a small job first, that basically attempts to make Windows function properly by way of using files that you have on hand for that purpose.

The job takes 15 to 30 minutes.

Open a command window with Admin rights, and copy and paste the following, then hit enter.    sfc /scannow

You'll get a report at the end, telling you if it repaired anything, perhaps requiring a reboot.

 

PS: It occurs to me that if the problem is only 2 days old, there's a good chance that you could resolve the it by doing a System Restore to a date that precedes the issue.
